Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said that even though the probe headed up by Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller did not find any so-called collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russia, this will not be the end of efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office.
Limbaugh told host Sean Hannity he believed that even if Trump is reelected in 2020, he’ll continue to face threats of impeachment.
“This is worse than anybody is being led to believe it is,” Limbaugh said. “Because it’s being called an investigation, and Trump passed the test, they didn’t find anything. They’re not finished. They aren’t through trying to get rid of Donald Trump. They’re not through trying to overturn the election results of 2016. They’re never going to finish trying to get rid of – even if he is elected in 2020. They’re setting up the impeachment now with all of this stuff. It’s never – that’s why these people need to be politically defeated and pounded into the ground to the point of irrelevance. And the way to do it is to educate as many Americans as possible to what happened. And you can’t do that by moving on and say, OK, well, we escaped this one, gang, let’s move on to the next agenda item here, which better be immigration, by the way.”
“It is – it . They, and it wasn’t an investigation,” he continued. “There was no evidence ever of collusion. It should never have begun. Rosenstein should have never appointed anybody. The FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign were illegal. The judges there were either complicit to this, or they were lied to and now don’t care. We’ve got a two-tier justice system. The very foundations of this country have been attacked and assaulted, and the people who know it in the mainstream media are complicit in it instead of trying to blow it up and explain it to the American people.”
“We’re at a very, very dangerous point in the history of our nation,” Limbaugh added. “And there is just one guy standing up against all of this. And that’s Trump. There is not another Republican that I know of – maybe you do, Sean. There’s not another Republican that could have withstood what Trump has put up with for one week. They would have been suing for peace, they would have been giving up, they would have acknowledged all this and resigned. It is – it is a stroke of luck here that we’ve had Trump to put up with this.”
